BATON ROUGE, La. —The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) urges all residents in the path of Tropical Storm Nate to take steps now to prepare.
“PCI encourages individuals and families who are threatened by Tropical Storm Nate to act now and get prepared,” said Joe Woods, PCI’s vice president of state government relations. “While the storm’s path is currently uncertain, it has great potential to impacts several states, and there are several things residents can do now to protect their homes and businesses, and ensure they can recover as quickly as possible from any losses. This includes documenting your property and possessions ahead of a storm, so you have an accurate illustration of any damage that needs to be reported to your insurance company or agent.”
PCI recommends taking the following precautions:
“Just as we saw with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, storm paths can change very quickly and cause massive amounts of damage,” said Woods. “This is a good reminder to check with your insurer to see if you have flood coverage, as many residents do not realize standard homeowners policies do not cover flood damage.”
“Should residents incur any damage, PCI encourages you to notify your insurer immediately,” concluded Woods.
